Six of Spades: Jeffrey Clark, sought top DOJ position in order to overturn 2020 election







Mr. Clark caused outrage among his [Trump Justice Department] colleagues by advancing false election fraud claims and seeking to intervene in the presidential election in Georgia.

[Scott] Perry was deeply involved in the attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election. He connected former president Trump with Jeffrey Clark, the environmental lawyer for the Department of Justice (DOJ) who supported Trump’s claims. 

Clark allegedly circulated a letter encouraging state officials in Georgia to decertify their election results. He was Trump’s pick for attorney general when William Barr declined to pursue vote fraud claims., and would have become acting attorney general if the leadership of the DOJ hadn’t threatened to resign as a group if Trump appointed him.

Clark was subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 committee in October, and refused to answer questions during a deposition. Clark was reported to have invoked the Fifth Amendment more than 100 times when he testified again in February, according to CNN.
